It feels like we've barely caught our breath around here, after all the holiday madness. But now it's time to think about Valentine's Day! This is one of those holidays I let go of completely in my 20's. Now that I have a little girl to celebrate with, suddenly Valentine's Day is fun again - and the perfect excuse to add some cheery home decorations to a dreary time of year.
Better yet, there are lots of DIY decor ideas that won't break the bank, and can even be done with your kids. I always love finding craft projects that give you as much bang for your buck as possible. Especially paper garlands, because one project can cover several feet of space in your home. Plus it's easy to find a spot for a garland - whether it's windows, fireplaces, bookshelves, or even draping garlands over some favorite art along a wall.
